Q: What exactly does web site migration mean and what does it entail?
A: If your present web hosting provider can no longer satisfy the necessities of your website, or when you experience continual downtime, or if you are forced to wait for hours for the technical support staff to reply to you, it may be a good idea to switch your provider, i.e. to move all the files for your web sites together with your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At Dedicated Web Hosting Domain Name Services, we know that this can be difficult and time–consuming. Because of this, we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!Our competent technical staff members will migrate your site content from your current provider to us. Our techs have extensive experience with web site migration and can handle anything – from a common WordPress–based weblog or Joomla™ CMS–based web site, to a very complex, custom–made application.
Q: Just how long will the website migration procedure take?
A: While we can’t give you an exact ETA, since there are plenty of variables, including the physical size of the files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the current workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our very best to transfer your web site within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (when the website content is not very large).
Q: My personal privacy is important to me. What details do you need?
A: We don’t collect any information that is sensitive. We’ll need, though, the login information for your old web hosting account and the name of the website that you want to migrate.
Q: My old web hosting account has sensitive data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my website be unavailable during the migration?
A: Your website will continue to work just like it did before with your former hosting provider. As soon as we are through with the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If everything is working correctly, all you will need to do is edit the NS records pertaining to your domain name. Your website will be migrated to us with no downtime.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider find out that I am leaving them?
A: While we move your website content, your web hosting provider will not be aware of the transfer at all. We will not contact them in any way.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate content from?
A: We can migrate your site from any hosting provider or any Linux–based hosting platform on condition that we can receive access to the Control Panel and there’s File Transfer Protocol access available.The only web sites that we’re unable to transfer are those based on closed–source software apps such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square and Mr Site.
